What is a private yoga lesson like?

The session is all about you.  We start with a debrief outlining our focus for the session.  Based on your needs we’ll begin with guided warm ups, tailored postures, and breathing techniques.  At the end of your session a guided meditation will bring you into a deep healing state (savasana) for 5-10 minutes.

What is an energy healing treatment like?

We initiate your body’s wisdom to heal by answering reflection questions before your session.  When you arrive to the studio we sit down, debrief your answers, and set the focus.  The session continues with a grounding meditation to open the flow of your energy body.  Then you’ll be reclined on a healing table (clothed) for the bio-field work.  In closing your feedback is discussed, homework is assigned, and an affirmation is chosen to take home with you.

You’ll receive an email follow up with a summary of your session and home work reminders.

What do I wear?

Yoga is traditionally done in bare feet, if you prefer to wear your socks that’s no problem.  Take off your jewellery/watch and wear comfortable clothing.  Athletic pants or long shorts and a longer shirt are most comfortable because they don’t ride up your back when moving.

For a healing treatment you can wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

What is the studio etiquette?

Don’t eat before your class, or try to have a light snack well before, and hydrate by having a glass of water a few hours before your session.  Refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, and hand/foot cream as it will interfere with your steadiness on the mat.  Take your shoes off at the door, you can wear socks or barefoot to practice.
